Car! Wood's paper, published in the journal Australian Medicine, uses American research which found that the children of lesbian couples are more tolerant of diversity and more socially skilled. Children of lesbians were also found to suffer far less parental sexual and physical abuse and incest than their peers. "Women are more verbally fluent than males, so with two women bringing up a child, it has a greater chance of developing better conversation skills," Wood said. "The children of lesbians in the studies also had a broader view of life." Australian Family Association national secretary Bill Muehlenberg disagreed with Wood, saying that the great weight of studies suggested any combination other than a man and woman—preferably married— harmed the child. "These children will do less well on almost every social indicator—school performance, suicide rates, drug involvement and criminal involvement," Muehlenberg said. Gays could benefit as U.K. looks to liberalize adoption guidelines LONDON—Tony Blair's Labor government has announced plans to liberalize adoption rules, including easing restrictions on adoptions by gay men and lesbians, in hopes of increasing the number of adoptions by 50 percent, the London Times reported. "In far too many parts of the system there is a lack of clarity, consistency and fairness. Most pressing- ly, children in an already vulnerable position are being badly let down," says a report the government plans to release this week. The Times reported that the changes will not likely give gay couples full parity with married couples. Other changes in eligibility for adoption include allowing couples over 35 to adopt, allowing couples who are overweight or who smoke to adopt, and easing adoption procedures for mixed-race couples. Government officials hope to increase adoptions by nearly a third, to 3,000 a year, and ease the backlog of 2,000 children who are transferred between foster homes every year. Number of gays seeking asylum in U.S. grows as qualifications broadened FT. LAUDERDALE—The number of gay men and lesbians seeking political asylum is growing rapidly, especially in the South Florida region, the South Florida Sun Sentinel reported. The increase inspired South Florida immigration attorneys to create a chapter of the New York-based Lesbian & Gay Immigration (Rights Task Force to help gays dealing with immigration matters. "These people have just been showing up on our doorsteps," said Clark Reynolds, executive director of the Dade Human Rights Foundation. "We had no idea this was such a huge problem." In 1990 Congress quietly removed sexual orientation as a disqualification for U.S. admission. In 1994, Attorney General Janet Reno clarified that persecution based on sexual orientation can be considered grounds for asylum, and in August, the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals overturned a ruling by the Board of Immigration Appeal that had denied asylum to Mexican transsexual Geovanni Hernandez-Montiel. But U.S. immigration law still prohibits HIV-positive immigrants from entering the country. BBC relaxes ban on discussing that former minister's sexual orientation LONDON—The BBC has relaxed its ban on mentioning the sexual orientation of a former government minister who was outed, the Guardian reported. BBC journalists were outraged when Ann Sloman, the agency's chief political adviser, told editorial staff in a September 1998 memo that "the allegation" that Peter Mandelson is gay should not be repeated during broadcasts. Mandelson, who was serving as Northern Ireland secretary when he was outed, was openly living with a partner at the time. Journalists and politicians had accused the BBC of caving in to Mandelson's demands and affording him special treatment. The revised policy says that basic guidelines—that public figures are in a special position but retain their right to a private life—remains the same. But "sensible editorial judgments should be applied in the light of changed circumstances." African AIDS vaccine tests delayed pending government approval NAIROBI, Kenya (AP)—Trials of the first AIDS vaccine specifically designed for Africa, slated to begin this week, have been delayed until early next year. Kenya's Health Minister Sam Ongeri said the government approval process is not complete, and that the trials will not begin until early next year. The International AIDS Vaccine Initiative, which has been working on two vaccines it hopes will immunize people against HIV, is currently testing the vaccines on a small number of volunteers in England. None of the volunteers have displayed adverse effects from the vaccines, said Andrew McMichael of the Medical Research Council. In primates, the two vaccines combined have boosted the immune response. But it will take up to five years before it is known whether vaccines actually work on humans, and several ____ — more t0 reach the general population, McMichael RUM For more news visit Mid "There ls tremendous urgency in getting the Higirn WWW.h0USt0nv6ice.C0m vaccine trials to go forward," he said. ^^ ■MfiBi . >n staff iiticl wire report* The BBC's policy on not broadcasting reports that Peter Mandelson, a former government minister, is gay has been revised to account for 'changed circumstances/
